An Indigenous-led initiative has been launched that sets out to improve access for Indigenous communities to clean, reliable power in remote and regional areas.

The First Nations Clean Energy Network aims to tackle energy poverty in these communities while ensuring Indigenous Australians can participate in the green energy boom.

The network seeks to improve the relationship between resource companies and Indigenous Australians to secure better outcomes for these communities.
